hey there, say, say, mouse...

mouse...



;)

painting is coming a long nice...
(not as your previous note, on nice)...

:)


say, nice shots, too, of the 'rambling man on mt'...
forgot:
also, nice snow, 'like it up here' seems like
why start rambling, in that case... :))

i love rocks, but today was not so happy with them...
meaning:
those odd rocks in your photo of liz and kids,
i could not paint into their proper 'noteworthy presents'
thus, it presented itself more like a dirt-mound, :(

the dirt mound IS solidify, however, so there is hope...

Wow, two Chico posts in a week! Great to hear from TT of the Feather River Country.

There is a prize going out tomorrow with your name on it. Well, not exactly, but you'll see.

It's not a well-corroborated story, you can understand.

One day, around the beginning, God pondered how to do rocks.

He said something and something happened and the problem solved itself.


It took a few bilion years, but it came out fine. Except the choss.

Some of which is present in the photo. Paint choss the colour it seems. That stuff on the Feather is not exactly the iron shade of the rest of the north country, that ever-present red. It's dirty yellow and chunky. That may be just a slide, or maybe a roadcut. And it's choss, so blunder through it if you need to.

neebee, treebee, rockee

Rock ye on...

edit: I recommend the climb of Mr. Yuk at the end of Rock On. A 13 yr-old doing a 14 at Smith Rocks. Sport climbing, but hey...

You know I hate to climb on snow (except on rambles it's OK cuz you don't need crampons and an ax, big hassles for yours truly, who prefers minimal gear to slow you down.

This really shows me how much ice there is to avoid. That's what it shows me. It's a very colourful map, too.

It's Friday out there. It's safe as milk in The Flames, though. We got stuff to cure all y'all's ills.

It's Lent. Suffer.
late 14c., short for Lenten (n.) "forty days before Easter" (early 12c.), from Old English lencten "springtime, spring," the season, also "the fast of Lent," from West Germanic *langa-tinaz "long-days" (cf. Old Saxon lentin, Middle Dutch lenten, Old High German lengizin manoth), from *lanngaz (root of Old English lang "long;" see long (adj.)) + *tina-, a root meaning "day" (cf. Gothic sin-teins "daily"), cognate with Old Church Slavonic dini, Lithuanian diena, Latin dies "day" (see diurnal).

the compound probably refers to the increasing daylight. Cf. similar form evolution in Dutch lente (Middle Dutch lentin), German Lenz (Old High German lengizin) "spring." Church sense of "period between Ash Wednesday and Easter" is peculiar to English.

Fast during "slow." Good one.

I never heard of these bloaks. Will Hands? But it's Brown, so it may be a relation. Brown-eyed handsome men, eh?

neebee, here's a video for you. Don is speaking of imbalance caused by sinuses being out-of-whack, like what you were talking about on another old thread, so you may want to try to watch this one if possible.

Oh, and anyone else who's like Blakey.

I thought about Hite Cove and poppies and a ride there on the YARTS, then looked at the skies.
Think I'll hang here today.

Hite Cove and wildflowers could wait and I crawled back to the sack.

Down at the Farmer's Market I met up with Richard Carlson, my tentmate from the Lodge Employees tents over in the margin of Leidig Meadow in 1968. We both earned Block Ms on the varsity swimming team in 1966.

Richard and Jane Orenburg this morning.

Jane is MHS, class of '65. It made me real happy to see Rich has hooked up with such a smart and sassy lass. He was real down about his late wife's passing for quite a while.

His nickname has always been "Rainbow." The eight-hour loaf.

At different times in 1971 or 1972, these two fine upstanding Merced High School Key Clubbers were helped up Monday Morning Slab (Right Side for CO and Left Side for Brent) by the fine guides of The Flames of Campo Quatro, Mouse and the Rev, in exchange for contrabandos--Panama Red from CO and Boone's Farm from the bus driver.

CO is named for his dad, Carvel Oliver, but it's CO. Both Brent and CO worked after school at Julio's Men and Boys on Main, so they were naturally well-groomed and popular. CO went to work for PG&E and ran crews and did troubleshooting in the City and hung out skatboarding with Throwpie on occasion in the seventies. He's always been the motorcycle maniac. He's even more like Whillans now, physically, "twelve stone over." Brent's just retiring from Merced College as a psychotic's instructor. (I'm sure there are plenty there.) He has a Harley. So? CO has ten bikes. That run. What's in the garage not working, who knows? Many.

Carvel and CO were my next-door neighbors and Larry was my neighbor across the back fence. Carvel ran the sales counter at Yosemite Lumber Co. on Sixteenth next to the old SP tracks, now the BN. His family is from Mariposa, and his brother was an engineer on the YVRR.

Here's a shot of Yosemite Farms over on the Santa Fe tracks. Just so you know, there's a Yosemite Ag Credit, too. No connection to Yosemite Farms. Odd.

When I got this today and scanned it thinking it was good for zBrown, who loves woodies in the sand at the beach or in the bed of a 1952 vintage pick-up; with reason, and like zBrown, I had lofty hopes for the end prod.

The correction of the color from scanner output wasn't obvious, however, so I snapped some snaps and got this result in my curious search for the zBrownian goal, i.e., definite answers to vague questions about dark and light at absolutely no charge, which infers neutrality, a total oxymoron. Stupid, stupid Finns. Always overlooking the obvious, their skills as observers, or at least the skills of the watered-down Finn, are maybe a bit too casual. I'm finished. :)
